District Heating Systems cost 10% less on average than gas for consumers. In addition, due to the nature of geothermal energy, prices for customers will remain steady throughout the lifetime of supply.

For individual customers, there are significant benefits to the scheme including:

  • No need for a traditional boiler
  • More efficient energy supply in a directly useable form
  • Minimal maintenance of the system once installed
  • No risk of carbon monoxide
